John came into the world in Beverly Hills and decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps and become an actor. The first good opportunity arrived during his childhood when Norman Abbott asked him to play the role of Eddie Munster in his show The Munsters. However, John’s mother refused as she did not want his son to be exposed to media attention at such a young age. John had always been grateful to his mother for this wise decision.

Throughout his life, John struggled to make enough money with his acting career. He often got sporadic roles in horror and comedy movies such as Nocturna, which came out in 1979, Americana, released in 1981, and Full Cry-Baby, which was first screened in 1990. Unfortunately, in 2012 John became homeless. During this period, he started to wear a shirt reading ‘I’m Drew Barrymore’s brother’.
